If you have cockerels or roosters, and they have been mating with the pullets or hens for at least 2 weeks, then the egg is fertile. If no roosters or cockerels, then the egg is just an egg.

I got a first egg from a pullet yesterday and fried it up just this morning!! So tasty!

There is a lady on here that will blow out those first eggs and paint them. She keeps them in a tiny nest in the house for display. I need to do this too.
